I practice in the area of family law, helping clients with various matters including cohabitation agreements and marriage contracts, custody and access issues, child and spousal support, separation agreements, and property division.

My approach is to pursue a result that is fair, conscious of a client’s needs, and negotiated by the parties with the help of their counsel and other dispute resolution processes. Where negotiation or processes like mediation are not an option, I am able to assist my clients in court and advocate for them. I recognize that every family is unique and, because of that, my discussions with, and advice to, clients about their options are honest, while being fully mindful of their circumstances.

I graduated from the University of Ottawa in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts, Honours in English and Criminology. I continued at the University of Ottawa for my legal education, receiving my J.D. from the University in June 2015. I completed my articles with Mann Lawyers and began my practice here after being called to the Bar in 2016.

I am a member of the Ontario Bar Association and am a part of the executive for the Young Lawyers Division (YLD). I am also a member of the Friends of the Ottawa Public Library Association (FOPLA), an organization whose focus is supporting the city’s local libraries through volunteer work and monthly book sales and donations.

In my spare time, I can be found with my nose in a good book or trying a new recipe.  I enjoy spending time with my family and travelling with my husband. Trip highlights include kayaking around Dubrovnik’s city walls in Croatia, discovering the best lobster shack, Richard’s, in PEI, and getting engaged in Rome.

I am fluent in Slovakian and English and am pleased to offer services in both languages.
